Visions Of The Oasis!
I’m generally a positive person but last year I fell into a depression when my band fell apart. I was making barely enough money and was walking into town because I had no car. After a 5 year long stint being overly “environmentalist” left me feeling too broke to afford to drive. I’d literally marvel at young teens who drove, how do they afford it? My experiences with assertive environmentalists convinced me that the universe was sparse and we humans have to scrimp, save, and shame ourselves for consuming it’s resources.
But alas, The Secret came into my life!
I opened up the book one day and realized that the universe is full of infinite abundance for all! It became apparent to me that thinking of the earth as a victim of our existence is wrong. So I began to change my thinking.
The next day, I opened up to the part of the book that speaks of visualization, specifically about cars. It says to picture the back of your hands wrapping around the steering wheel of your brand new dream car. I allowed myself to indulge, though I have always felt guilty about the luxury of a brand new car. Don’t you need a rich man’s credit for that? All kinds of questions came to my mind, but instead I found a photo online of hands around the steering wheel of the car I wanted; a new Subaru. I focused on this image every day.
Then one day my dad said “I don’t know why you’re not making $100/hour?”. At first I was offended. Why couldn’t he be happy with my current work and success? As I made it back to my place, I thought of The Secret: Why was I resistant to this idea? I decide to know for certain that I was capable of making $100/hour. I felt awesome now. I felt excited that I am able to make $100/hour.
The very next day I sold a design project for about $3000 that was 30 hours of work. I met my goal!
This kicked me into full swing and I started test driving brand new cars as well as used cars, with a focus on a new car. Thought it felt impossible at times I kept imagining that I owned ALL of the cars on the car lot, that there was nothing evasive or strange about wealth in my life.
I drove off of the lot with my brand new Subaru only a month later! Meanwhile, I still had no band, and music is my soul’s deep passion.
I had prayed and prayed but to no avail. Then I stumbled upon the “vision board” I’d made for my band. I thought, well this didn’t work! But on further inspection, I saw that I had drawn myself between two bandmates and I had drawn in their faces. I realized this was not right because they sort of looked like my old bandmates. I quickly crossed out both of their faces to let the universe know that I will gladly take any two good people to play music with.
The VERY next day I got a random message from a guy from of all places, Detroit, who had recently moved to Philadelphia and loved my music. He had a bassist too, and we now have been working on a new album, live shows and have a band called Creetures, and a powerful connection thanks to prayer and the power of The Secret!
All of my visions came true! I am so grateful every day!
